All around great meal!

The prices are fair, and the food is magnificent. Fresh seafood is surveys and it is never bad or old. This is wonderful family restaurant with a classic American style children's menu, yet a diverse menu for Adults. Not only can you sit inside or out, but you can feel a certain friendly, welcoming... read more

This is a good example of great food being a forgiving element. The hostess/manager was on top of the seating for this busy place and she made everyone feel welcome. Our waitress was frazzled and forgot to bring us the condiments we asked for. I specifically ordered a meal that included cole slaw and it never came. So why the... More

The lobster was amazing and also other dishes were absolutely great, for a completely reasonable price. Good location, in front of the dock. Good for families and groups. Service can be a little slow if there is a lot of people, but kindness and sympathy of the staff make it worth to wait a little. Absolutely recommended.

We got clam strip roll, chowder, seafood stew, and side of clam strips. Plenty for the three of us. Totally exceeded expectations.

We enjoyed steamers and beer at the bar while we waited for our table. We wanted to eat outside, but took first available. Ended up inside, but had a better view of the water. Outside seating is more on the side of the building. Best steamers we've had in years! Had clam strips and fries and my husband had a... More

Just returned from July 2015 vacation on the Cape. Ate at Spanky's three times during our 5 day stay. WHY? Because (1) the food is ALWAYS stellar; (2) price is reasonable; and (3) staff/owners are customer oriented. Not sure why some travelers think prices are high. In KY, similar platters at a chain restaurant (i.e. FROZEN fish) would cost more;... More

Casual seafood dining in or outside near the water. We had the lobster rolls which were huge and packed with delicious lobster with just the right amount of mayo and a smidgen of celery on a roll. I would have liked a toasted roll but otherwise it was the best lobster roll I have ever had. They substituted a baked... More

Came here for dinner during an overnight stay in Hyannis. Staff was friendly and attentive. Lobster rolls were delicious and were a generous size portion. Local I.P.A. was also a great compliment to the rolls. Definitely will come by here when in Hyannis again.

We stopped in here for a casual dinner just two of us. Our server was friendly and efficient. Our drinks were brought quickly and orders taken soon there after. I ordered the lobster roll and my husband the whole belly clam roll. Our dinners were out in no time and typical pub fare. Serving sizes were more than enough with... More

My fiancé and I dined al fresco, waterside at this casual dining location. She had the fish stew which she RAVED about and I had the fried clam platter. They were really fresh and excellent. The place, mid week, was packed and we waited about 20 minutes for an outdoor table. Service was friendly and attentive. I can never get... More
